Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Members of different congregations in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, volunteer to assist medical staff in taking care of patients with the coronavirus as well as carry out logistical work.
In Ho Chi Minh City and two provinces in Vietnam badly hit by COVID-19's delta variant, hundreds of women and men religious have voluntarily joined front-line forces to take care of patients at understaffed hospitals.
"The COVID-19 pandemic is a chance to share what we have with our brothers and sisters in need," explains one of the many Vietnamese sisters whose congregations are providing free food for people under quarantine.
The Catholic Church has spent the whole month of November asking everyone to pray for the souls of the deceased. This atmosphere of prayer is very visible and vivid in our parish cemetery.
